The Harsh Voice
The Harsh Voice | Rebecca West
2 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
In these four brilliant short novels set in America, England and Paris, Rebecca West explores the lives and relationships of rich women and men who are ruled by 'the harsh voice we hear when money talks, or hate'. There is Josie, a flower of American girlhood whose boundless ambition for wealth fatally loosens the bonds of her marriage to Corrie. There is Etienne de Sevenac, a dilettante French aristocrat whose courtly stratagems are no match for Nancy Sarle - a plain but powerful American businesswoman. There is Alice Pemberton, a sensible Englishwoman - the very salt of the earth - but a petty tyrant in her gracious Georgian home. And lastly there is Sam Hartley, an American businessman who has fought his way to riches with his wife at his side, but whose life is now haunted by an abiding vision of beautiful young women.

‘I‘m trying to tell you that you hurt people. You hurt them continually and intolerably. You find out everybody‘s vulnerable point and shoot arrows at it, sharp, venomed arrows. They stick, and from time to time you give them a twist‘
